RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Israeli forces reportedly detained an 11 year-old Palestinian child in the central occupied West Bank on Wednesday afternoon, locals said.According to local sources, Muhammad Munir Tamimi was at the entrance of the village of Deir Nidham northwest of Ramallah when Israeli forces detained him and took him to an unknown destination.It remained unclear as of Thursday whether Tamimi had been released or was still in Israeli custody.Deir Nidham residents told Ma’an that Israeli forces have been carrying regular raids in the village and have detained more than 10 children in recent months.An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.The Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs released a statement in October which said that at least 1,000 Palestinian minors between the ages of 11 and 18 had been detained by Israel in the first ten months of 2016, a number of whom reported being abused and tortured while in detention.According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 400 Palestinian minors were held in Israeli custody as of October.
